Romantic Gifts – Lovespoons

Though flowers are the romantic gift most often associated with Americans, we could grow in our ability to express our devotion by looking to the romantic traditions of other countries.  Wales, for instance, has held the tradition of giving hand carved lovespoons when courtship begins and on special days there after.

Originating in the 16th century, a lovespoon would be carved from a single piece of wood in intricate designs – all holding special meanings (see picture).

If you were given a lovespoon it was not only a token to cherish forever, but a message to embrace.  During the month of December we’ll be offering a variety of ideas for unique gifts to help you express your love and affection to one another.  This year think of different ways you can specifically communicate to your spouse the gift their love is to you.

Communication is the doorway to intimacy!

    This is a great gift idea, thank you. I was looking around for a romantic gift that speak of love but is not pink LOL or full of cheap red hearts…This will be perfect as i like wood carving.
